Environment and Energy:

Challenges and Opportunities from Bio and Nanotechnology

Bogotá, Colombia, March 9-10, 2016

Pontificia Universidad Javeriana

Auditorio Félix Restrepo

 

The International Workshop CBN-W1 is one of the two conferences scheduled for the second phase of the Bio-Nano Convergence Network initiative. The objectives of this first Workshop are as follows:

  1. To establish a reference framework for the execution of Phase 2, whereby energy challenges and environmental problems within FEALAC countries may be addressed from a nano/bio technology perspective.
  2. To introduce and discuss action plans to be applied on the formulation of projects, including consideration to possible sources of financing, and the scope, treatment and participation of each member country within the different projects.
